There was a time when the Casa de Kolchak dogs had a collar for every occasion.

We had red and green ones, collars with bunner, bright beachy collars, birthday collars, so many orange and black Halloween collars. It was a mania. Hi, my name is Jodi and I have a collar shopping problem.

When we moved into the apartment, I did a huge purge, getting rid of all but a couple favourite collars. till, every time a holiday rolls around, I get a pang of longing for the old collars and I have to resist the temptation to run out and buy a few collars.

Do you want to dress your pet up for special occasions, but don’t want to store a ton of collars? DIY Dog Collar Decorations are the solution.

I mean, how CUTE is this little fabric four leaf clover? It was so easy to make and so easy to convert into a collar decoration! Once I had sewed the four leaf clover shape, I cut a small strip of felt in the same colour, folded it into a loop and sewed the loop to the flower. (Pictures coming this afternoon – SOME idiot left the camera battery die. I’ve got to talk to Kolchak about remembering to plug that thing in!)

(be warned – it’s all in Chinese, which I do not speak,

but the picture is pretty self explanatory!)


Do you do anything special for special occasions? A pretty collar? An extra special snack?
